DISREGARD FDR LAW
Attorney Declares United States
Leads in Crime.
President of Iin~is Bar Association
Points to increase in' Homicides
in America and Refers at
Length to Lynchings.
Chicago.-The United States is most
lawless of the civilized nations; its
homicide rate' Is growing -faster than
that of any other. land; lynching is
America's own peculiar plague, and
to wipe it out should be made the
first business of the coupitry.
This'indictment of the United States
as holder of the intorrational record
for deeds of violence was uttered by
Robert MeMurdy, iilsident of the Illi
noIs State liar association, in opening
the annual couvehtion of that organi
zation at the Hotel La Salle.
"At the outset," said Mr. Mchurdy,
"we must adnit that the inhabitants
of the United States are the most law
less of all civilized peoples.
"Andrew D. White tells us that
homicide is the most rapidly growing
of serious erhues in this country, and
that it is increasing more rapidly here
than in any other land. Four years
ago he gave to the world some figures
covering an eight-year podod. He
'found the number of murders a year
per million population to be: Canada,
3; Germany, 4-5; Englund and Wales,
10-11; France, 12-15; Belgium, 15;
United States, over 129.
"The latest official figures at hand
(1912) give the number of homiokles
in London as 86. During the same
year in Chicago they reached 231. It
the total for Chicago were figured to
correspond with the population the
record -would read: London, 86; Chli
cago, 693. Moreove;''-Chicago by no
means heads the murder list of Ameri
Taking up the subject of lyncl ng.
Mr. McMurdy submitted figures show
ing that during 32 years the number
tynched in the United States has
reached a total of 2,998, an average of
one every three days. In the last ten
years the yearly average has been re
duced to 72.
. Turning to disregafd for law, other
than that connected with murder, Mr.
McMurdy reviewed a long list of in
stances-the revelations of political
corruption that made Adams county,
Ohio, notorious, the judicial reputa
tion of Denver, the lawlessness of the
police, the deflance of ,law by mine
owners at Calumet, violations of law
by labor, per'jury as a cotqpanion of
divorce suits, evasion of customs by
"best citizens," break41g of speed
laws, and many others.
"The annual cost of crime in the
United States," he said, "is much
greater than our national debt."
Methods of law administration that
have been outgrown through the
change in social and industrial condi
tions were dwelt upon by John B.
Winslow, chief justice of the Wiscon
sin supreme court. He described a
long list of "absurdities in the law"
through which cases are delayed, jus
tice miscarries and criminals are en
abled to escape.

Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 19.-Foriner
Senator J. L. McLaurin, .of South
Carolina, referred to by Gov. Cole L.

ed man in the world on the cotton
situation," thinks the southern fanm

Laurin has made a more exhaustive
study of conditions than any other
man in the country, lie will speak
for Gov. 'llease in South Carolina';
plans for relieving the situation are
asked foit at today's conference.
"The Aldrick-Vreeland act has
proven a failure and has not accom
plished whit the secett:v of the
treasury led the people of the South
to expect wleii (lie cotton congress
was held at Washington in August,"
said Senator MeLainliii last night at
the Chisa. "''he new currency aet
is soon, to become effective and the
South canl take advantage of it
through state bonds to the extent of
taking up the distressed cotton aind
providing for the needs of the domes
tic mills at 10 or 12*cents a pound.
".If this is lone, it would fix a bor
rowing value for cotton at about
eight cents, which would be anllclent
to liquidate the expenses incurred in
railing the crop.
"The trouble will not be eliminated
however, until the farmer learns the
lesson of diversifieation. A partial re
duction of cotton acerage next sea
son will not fill the bill. If the cot
ton acreage is only partly reduced
there will still be a surplus and
prices will sag and hit the bottom.
"At a recent conference in New
Orleans Hlarvie Jordan, quoting Hes
ter, said the visible and inSisible %up
ply of cotton on Sept I was 6,238,000
bales. The present crop on hand acr
cording to a federal government rI
port,' indicates 15,000,000 bales. My
own opinion is that it will not be un
der 10,000,000 bales. ro the pres
ent crop and supply On Sept. 1, add
7,000,000 bales raised in India, igypt
and other foreln countries, which
would give a total of 28,000,000
"The consumption for the world is
estimated at 14,800,000, while the con
suiption during Peace time is esti
mated at 21,000,000 bales. Therefore
there will be 13,000,000 to 1.1.000,000
bales to carry over in 1915. This you
will see that a partial redlutioni of
next year's crop will have the desired

-THAT VILLAGE BARBER SHOP
Dreamer of Whom the Years Have
Taken Toll Holds It Vividly In
To the barber's soothing snip, snip,
snip, and the gentle tug of the comb,
I dreamed of the barber shops of my
boyhood and of Clarkiq Parker's in
particular. Clarkie's shop was in Ly
ceum Hall block, one flight'up-a huge
room, with a single green-upholstered
barber's chair between the windowe,
where you would sit an4 watch the
town go by below. you. The room
smelled pungently of by rum. Bar
ber shops don't smell of bay rum any
more. Around two sides were ranged
many chairs and an old leather couch.
The chair arms were smooth and black
with the rubbing of innumerable hands
and elbows, and behind them, making
a dark line along the wall, were the
marks where the heads of the sitters
rubbed as they tilted back. Nor can
I forget the spittoons-large, shallow
boxes, tv.o feet square-four of them
full of sand. On a third side of the
room stood the basin and watertaps,
an1 beside them a lirge black walnut
cabinet, full of shelves. The shclvei
were full of mugs, and on every mug
was a name, in gilt letters, generally
Old English. Those mugs were a
town directory of our leading citizens.
My father's mug was on the next to
the top shelf, third from the end on
the right. The sight of it used to
thrill me, and at twelve I began sur.
reptitiously to feel my chin, to see if
there were any hope of my achieving
a mug in the not too distant future.
